I Don't agree with mowing before April ,,,,,Just my thoughts ,,,,,the grass just started growing a few days ago,,,,,but if you all can find work to cut more power to you ..I just don't do it ,,,,,I've had a few customers tell me that some companys take advantage of mowing to early ,,,,but what do i know ,,,,,,,,,,,I think if you get by with it ,,,then great

Later Ray

I've got 15 lined up for tomorrow...not looking forward to it. Damn cold. May push some to wednesday, might just be to cold in the morning. I won't mow if there's frost. Can get some afternoon mowing in for sure though.

You won't mow if there is frost whats up with that. We have done it that way for years but you know we also just don't care about what's best for the lawn either. JK!

I mean like frozen grass, a little frost ok. It's going to be cold tonight but I guess it's not going to completely freeze the grass...hope that makes sense.

Watching the weather and they said it's gonna be too windy for it anyway. Just gonna be a cold start in the morning.
